NEW soccer facilities costing more than £600,000 have been unveiled in Kirkburton.
The new pavilion and floodlit all-weather pitch alongside Kirkburton Middle School are to become Kirkburton FC's new home.
The scheme cost £630,000 in total and was largely financed by the Lotto's Big Lottery Fund which donated £437,332 and a further £132,000 through its Seed programme.
The cash enabled the school to install drainage systems on its existing grass pitches.
James Hope-Gill, chief executive of the Sheffield and Hallamshire FA said : "We are delighted to have been involved in helping Kirkburton FC in implementing a development plan for football that has secured this grant. The club and school are to be congratulated for their hard work."
The school also raised £40,000, local clubs gave £20,000 and and Kirkburton Parish Council £1,000.
An estimated 110 extra junior players will be using the site outside school hours, with a special emphasis on local girls.
